This dress was my first purchase from Eshakti, a site that allows you to custom order dresses. I was psyched to find out about this site, since I often have a hard time finding dresses that are long enough for my frame! When I ordered this dress, I must have made a mistake in filling out the form. I entered my height at 5'11" and requested a calf-length garment. Imagine my shock when I received it in the mail, took it out of the box, and found that it was ankle-length! As they say, when it rains, it pours. Fortunately, my mom helped me do some much-needed altering, and I'm really happy with the result. Today I tried some pattern-mixing with my scarf (below), and added a bright teal cardigan for some extra color.
